Against visiting Tahoma Friday night, the Bearcats were stung by a desperation basket as the final buzzer sounded, losing 46-44. Rick Redfield evened the score at 44 with five seconds left to play when Tahoma's Junior Givens grabbed an inbounds pass and scored. Givens tallied 16 points, high scorer for the game. Monroe's Todd Williams and Redfield split with 12 each to lead Bearcat scoring. Monroe Coach Dennis Coates called the game a "great effort". "I'm pleased with where we are right now. We've just got to keep being aggressive," he assessed. In that area, he couldn't fault Williams, who snagged 21 rebounds. Other scorers were Smiley Creswell, with 10; Rod Drivstuen, who added 5 points; Mark Calvert, with 3; and Mark Anderson, who rounded out the game with 2. In an overtime tilt with Nooksack Saturday night, poor free throw percentages proved the Bearcats doom, as the 'Sackers put the clamps on Monroe, 43-41. A Monroe scoring surge during the second half knotted the score at 41 at the end of regulation play. But in the over- time, the 'Cats were unable to produce and Nooksack hit for the 2-point go-ahead. " "We need to work on patience and the mental mistakes we mitde," said Coates after the loss. "We made too many mental mistakes and had poor free throw shooting." The Bearcats were 7 for 22 in the FT department. Scavenging for some bright spots in the close contests, the coach expressed pleasure with his team's "hustle, desire and aggressiveness" so far this season. Against Nooksack, 6-5 senior forward Todd Williams netted 15 points to gain leading scorer honors. Junior Smiley Creswell led rebounding efforts with 13 boards and added 14 points. Rick Redfield and Rod Drivstuen added 6 points apiece. The Monroe hoopsters travel to Sedro Woolley Friday night for an 8 p.m. tilt.

Jumping to a 14-1 halftime lead, the Monroe ladies poured on the coals in the second half to bounce Tolt, 36-16, Thursday night. Nancy Wenzel and Gail Whitney combined for nearly two-thirds of the Monroe point production, with 13 and 10, respectively. Kim Creswell hauled in 20 rebounds as the Bearcat girls terrorized the southern team. Tolt's high point producer managed only 5 points. Adding to the debacle were Jacki Neisinger, with 4 poiints; Kris McDaniels, wno netted 3; and Sue Bickler, Creswell and Adrienne Lowber, with 2 apiece. But the Tolt performance was just a repeat game earlier against Sultan, which saw the Monroe lasses stoi'm to a 52-18 finale. Monroe broke the game open in the second half, scoring 28 points while holding the Turk ladies to 7 points. Nine of the 11 squad members broke into the scoring column. Again, Wenzel led Monroe scoring with 12 points while Whitney, Ev Carney and Wenzel shared rebounding chores with 4 eacy. Other scoring: Jacki Neisinger hit for 9; Sue Smith and McDaniels netted 6; Carney added 5; Lorena Blomgren, Bickler and Whitney contributed 4 each; and Lowber got 2 points. The girls team's next target is a home game against Mt. Si at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 21.
